On Inverse Form Finding for Anisotropic Hyperelasticity in Logarithmic Strain Space

Sandrine Germain, Michael Scherer, Paul Steinmann


The goal of this contribution is to extend the work of Govindjee and Mihalic (1996) on inverse form



finding for isotropic hyperelastic materials to the case of anisotropic hyperelastic materials formulated in the logarithmic strain space. A review of the pertinent theoretical aspects is presented. This is followed by several detailed numerical examples which highlight key features of the algorithm.
